Popcorn is a great Christmas/holiday snack because it's convenient and quick to make. It also finds its way into many a mouth as trees are decorated with streamers of fluffy white popped corn. Plus, it doesn't hurt that popcorn tastes fantastic and it is extremely versatile. 

>>>Is popcorn really a healthy snack?

For instance, if you need a health food, you can air pop it and serve it without butter. If you need dessert, pop some up and drizzle it with chocolate. If you need a savory snack, try adding your favorite flavors like bacon, truffles, and herbs. With popcorn, the sky is the limit.

Not sure where to get started? Here are three recipes you can use to dress up your popcorn.

Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

A cross between a popcorn ball and peppermint bark, this little dessert really packs flavor. It is important, though, that when you make it, that you use plain popcorn because the chocolate and the butter flavoring would clash.

  • 1 cup white melting chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 cups popped plain popcorn

  1. Melt the chocolate and stir in the extract; drizzle over the popcorn.
  2. Let it cool and serve.

Double Bacon and Peppercorn Popcorn

Bacon and black pepper go hand-in-hand: the rich meatiness of the bacon goes perfectly with the sharp spiciness of the black pepper. That's why this recipe blends both bacon salt and bacon fat with freshly ground black pepper for an amazing taste treat.

  • 2 strips bacon
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 cups popped popcorn (plain or buttered)

  1. Cook the bacon on medium heat until all of its fat is gone and the bacon is very crispy.
  2. Then, finely chop the bacon and mix with the salt. Reserve the grease.
  3. Toss as much of the bacon salt as you would like in the popcorn and then drizzle the bacon grease on top.

Sweet, Heat, and Citrus Popcorn

This recipe is a little savory and a little sweet: it combines brown sugar with cayenne pepper for a sugary kick and orange zest to give it a little something extra.


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 cups popped popcorn (plain)

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add the brown sugar and mix until it forms a sauce; stir in the cayenne and the zest and drizzle over the cooled popcorn.
